Area of expertise
Floral Design and Styling
How did you get started in the wedding industry?
I started as a delivery driver in high school and then worked at flower shops through college. After college, I was hired at an upscale floral shop and worked with some amazing designers and was a part of some fabulous events. After my daughter was born, I wanted something of my own. I owned a retail store and then transitioned it into a wedding and event only company. Now, I have a studio and love the attention I can give to my brides.
How would you describe your aesthetic?
I design very loose and organic with lots of texture. I love to incorporate fruit, branches, and unique containers to create an overall design .
What is your favorite part of being a florist?
I love meeting new people and creating something really special for them. When I hear, “this is better than I ever could’ve imagined” it means I’ve done my job and created something wonderful just for them!
What is a piece of advice you would give to a new florist?
Stay true to who you are. In the world of social media, it’s easy to get caught up in trying to be someone else, something popular, but if you stay true to who you are, you’ll thrive!
Something brides should know about your area of expertise:
I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and I love it more today than the first day I started. I love to create and I love that trends change and new flowers come on the market. It’s a business that should never stagnate!
Career highlight so far?
People are the highlight for me-brides, parents, vendors-I’ve met and worked with incredible people and they have a special place in my heart!
Best piece of advice for brides planning their wedding?
Prioritize what is important to you and spend your money in those areas. Most of the time, the budget doesn’t allow for the best of everything, so pick what’s most important and get the best!
